Exclamation NEW 2011 Prowler Lineup

Joey D. Rippin up the new 2011 Arctic Cat Prowler XTZ 1000


I was lucky enough to get to go on an amazing adventure with Arctic Cat and Americas Adventure Tours ( a UTVUndeground Sponsor) to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon all off road from mesquite, NV for the 2011 Arctic Cat Model Year Intro. It was one of the coolest off road adventures I had ever been on. We did over 300 miles all off road in brand new fresh off th eassembly line Arcitic Cat Prowlers.
I was amazed at how well these vehicles took the abuse that was thrown at them. With the exception of a few blown tires there was no major failures on any of the vehicles. We traversed rocky sections, sandy washes, mountain trails, rough roads, and high speed drifting switch backs.
While I would have love to see a sport specific model be introduced I was more than impressed with the Prowler XTZ 1000 and its capabilities. The motor and power is phenomenal and useable throughout the entire RPM range. Cargo capacity is great, and comfort was exceptional. The new Electronic Power Steering is really great at low speeds and when running in 4wd. The additin of Big Horn tires was a huge plus and I will note non of our tire failures were on Big Horns. While I would love some long travel suspension th estock suspension worked surprisingly well especially at high speeds.
In all I was very impressed with the Arctic Cat lineup and look forward to driving the new Prowler XTZ 1000 again!!! \
Look for more info in an upcoming issue of UTV Off Road Magazine and on UTVGuide.Net where we will be highlighting our trip and discussing the vehicles even further!!!


PROWLER XTZ 1000 (EPS)
Big-Bore Performance at its Finest

Nobody can talk enough about the big-bore performance of the Prowler XTZ. The Baja race-winning XTZ returns for 2011with an all-newrace-inspired round tube canopy, Electronic Power Steering (EPS), newsteering wheel, digital gauge and heavy-duty 14-in. aluminum wheels.
Electronic Power Steering – new to the Prowler XTZ for 2011 – enhance the 1000’s industry-leading handling. Arctic Cat’s Variable Assist EPS allows steering assistance to the XTZ before it even starts tomove at idle. This is a
huge benefit to conserving the rider’s input energy when in 4WD, especially when the differential lock is engaged. Arctic Cat EPS reduces the torque necessary to steer the XTZwhen changing direction with a loaded cargo box or navigating tough obstacles like rocks, deep mud or logs.

Joey D. gettin it on in the Prowler XTZ 1000
Combining one of the industry’s largest engines with sport-inspired suspension geometry, the performance minded Prowler XTZ provides the ultimate in untouchable recreation.
Arctic Cat engines have power where it matters: the ground. Arctic Cat H2 engines have more pulling power,more climbing power and more acceleration. The powerhouse 1000 V-Twin H2 has a 951cc, 4-stroke monster performance mill. The Duramatic automatic transmission has dynamic engine braking with Low, High, Neutral and Reverse.
New Dash and Tach configuration

The stance and suspension were race-bred and performance-calibrated with additional ride-in. What is ride-in? The Prowler XTZ will squat roughly 2 inches (depending on driver/passenger sizes) while providing 10 inches of ground clearance and 10 inches of suspension travel. The lower ride height and center of gravity inspire riding confidence in aggressive cornering and high speed handling. The XTZ boasts high performance suspension geometry with the best gas-charged monotube shocks on themarket.

A front locking 4WDdifferential with an all-in-one 2WD/4WD/Diff Lock rocker switch button for quick engagement shifting and rearmounted swaybar for improved trail driving.

[[/I]I know I always listen to the other products that are NOT made in the USA! Arctic Cat is a US manufacture and wants to stay one, Beginning with the 2014 model year they will be making their own Snowmobile engines in Minnesota no more jap engines! It is ok not to be happy with every thing they do. So please if you are not Happy with them buy the other brand and maybe they will have a job opening in Mexico or Canada for you. It is not just my feeling but some others we really dont want to hear people say hate their AC and are going to sell it and buy another Brand(not that you said that) We have a GREAT bunch of people on here and I think for the most part are Happy with their Prowlers. Also I am Proud to say I own and Arctic Cat Prowler!
